Meditation is an ancient practice used to transformconsciousness by altering attention, and it hasgained ground in the western world during the lastcentury. This book explores and describes meditationand its subjective consequences from the viewpoint ofsix long-term meditators. These consequences arehypothesized to be the outcome of the dissolution ofthe constructed and conditioned self. From observing,accepting and letting go of earlier conditioning anew awareness arises in the meditator who nowconceives the world and existence from an expandedpoint of view, devoid of the notion of duality. Theanalysis of the qualitative interviews in relation todifferent theoretical perspectives on the self showsthat the most essential effect of meditation is theincreased flexibility of behaviour, emotions andthoughts, in addition to spiritual harmony. Theseeffects can be considered a result of thetransformation of the self, facilitated by meditativepractice. This study should be interesting for anyonefascinated by meditation, psychology andalternative views of the human self and existence.

Book Description VDM Verlag Dr. Mueller e.K., Germany, 2008. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Meditation is an ancient practice used to transform consciousness by altering attention, and it has gained ground in the western world during the last century. This book explores and describes meditation and its subjective consequences from the viewpoint of six long-term meditators. These consequences are hypothesized to be the outcome of the dissolution of the constructed and conditioned self. From observing, accepting and letting go of earlier conditioning a new awareness arises in the meditator who now conceives the world and existence from an expanded point of view, devoid of the notion of duality. The analysis of the qualitative interviews in relation to different theoretical perspectives on the self shows that the most essential effect of meditation is the increased flexibility of behaviour, emotions and thoughts, in addition to spiritual harmony. These effects can be considered a result of the transformation of the self, facilitated by meditative practice. This study should be interesting for anyone fascinated by meditation, psychology and alternative views of the human self and existence. Seller Inventory # AAV9783639071702
